Jesse Jackson speaks out for Terri!

I generally don't agree with the views of Jesse Jackson. But I have to give him a lot of credit for speaking out for Terri Schiavo. I just heard his statement on the radio and he said what's being done to Terri is inhumane. Right on, Jesse!

Yeah, that's who I want on my side when I'm hitting the exit.

Hi Sister,

Well, this afternoon, Sean Hannity made it sound as if Jackson had made some headway convincing a couple of senators in the Black Caucus to change their votes. Let's pray something good comes of this. Personally, I am proud that Jesse Jackson took a stand for Terri. We need to pray she can hang in there.

Breaking news...Fox News is reporting that a Federal Appeals Court has agreed to hear the Schiavo appeal. Let's pray Terri can hang in there.

I hope something comes of the appeal. But at this point I wonder how much longer Terri can hang on. It's almost two weeks...

Here's a link with news about the appeal:

It's the 11th Circuit Court again, the same one that ruled against Terri last week.

I'm normally not a big fan of Rev Jesse, as I find him showing up for photo ops in too many places. I thought his comments tonight were very compassionate and balanced. I was quite impressed with him.

I enjoy reading your blog! We're about the same age, Catholic women on two very different walks. Stop by my blog and say hi sometime!
